"It feels good to run your business again. You're on your heels the whole year, rebuilding cards that were already built and not focusing on building your business. Right now, everything couldn't be better. Last year, we had main events and co-main events falling off every card. This year doesn't compare to last year. We're really building some momentum, and these fighters are going to keep it going."
Sure, we lost Alistair Overeem when he was injured and pulled out of UFC 160, not long before Renan Barao withdrew from UFC 161 and torched the main event, but Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White (via Newsday) is feeling good about the health of his fighters, perhaps overlooking main event changes (due to injury) to both UFC 163 and UFC 164. I guess those two cancel each other out because Anthony Pettis simply hops from one headliner to another and Jose Aldo is main eventing Brazil, so he could fight a broomstick and the fans would turn out. Sound fishy? Just flashback to nearly a year ago when the promotion had to cancel an entire event because of Dan Henderson's knee and the murderous intent of Greg Jackson. Ah, good times.
